Northumberland County Council want you to have your say on developing plans for #Blyth’s future.
A new survey is encouraging people to have their say on developing plans for Blyth. The council is encouraging everyone who lives, works, visits or runs a business in the town to give feedback on the area’s future as part of the first step in agreeing a new Town Deal which could secure up to £25m investment.
The survey, which closes on Sunday, November 1, is part of a new dedicated area on the council’s website about Blyth’s growth and regeneration: Click here to view the Energising Blyth website provided by Northumberland County Council (Opens in a new window)
On the new web pages people will be able to;
- Give initial views on Blyth’s future ahead of the Blyth Town Deal submission in January 2021
- Look at feedback from consultations held in September 2019 and February 2020
- Find out what the council and its partners have done in response to public views
- See details of the projects submitted to the Future High Street Fund over the summer
- Learn more about and give their views on the Northern Gateway scheme which will be delivered in and around Bowes Street next year
The first step towards agreeing a Town Deal is the creation of the Blyth Regeneration Framework on which the council are now seeking views. It’s asking local people and businesses to have their say and give their own ideas to ensure Blyth’s future is shaped and supported by the people who live and work here.
The public consultation will close on the first of November. Due to coronavirus restrictions, this will be an online-only consultation.
